But in some points in the novella, Steinbeck twists aspects of the Great Depression, and morphs them into similar yet impactful versions of his own. For example, the fact that Candy thinks the may get replaced wouldn’t have been a reality. While Steinbeck wrote Of Mice and Men, all itinerant ranch workers were starting to be replaced by machinery. Nonetheless, his novella captures lives of those at that time, and his perspective of it himself. By doing this, Steinbeck takes us into the minds of the characters and gives the novella a more personal
I shall be writing about the theme of loneliness in the book of mice and men. There are a lot of themes in the story but I choose loneliness. Many characters for example Candy and George give examples of loneliness. I would also write about the effect of loneliness had on them. George may have had Lenny to accompany him but, it was not enough.
Of Mice and Men is not only about two friends and their journey together, but as well as giving one a deeper meaning of the book, such as showing the nature of their dreams, the characters as archetypes, and if the killing of Lennie is justified in the end. In this literary novella, Steinbeck digs into the idea of the nature of dreams and that each man must make sacrifices or battle some other outside force to make a dream come true. This follows with the theme that humans give meaning to their life and future by creating dreams. George and Lennie both have vast dreams that influence them in different
Death, we all face it at some point in our lives. Although it is inevitable, there are certain ways in this world we live in to go about dying. “Ode on the Death of a Favourite Cat Drowned in a Tub of Goldfishes” by Thomas Gray and “Ode to a Large Tuna in the Market” by Pablo Naruda, both poems about the death of something. In Gray’s poem describes a cat whose curiosity gets the best of him while staring into a bowl of goldfish. In the poem “Ode to a Large Tuna in the Market” Naruda is speaking on behalf of a tuna, now dead, that has shown up in the market and the adventures he must have had with the sea.
However, there are several clear similarities and differences between the two chapters. It is shown that Steinbeck has remained loyal to setting but has made subtle changes to improve the overall reading quality of the novella. The beginning of chapter one and six both are set beside the silinas river. In chapter one, the mood is very peaceful, possibly representing the calm before the storm. This is proven by quotes like ‘slipped twinkling over the yellow sands’ or ‘the leaves lie deep and crisp’.
In the written text trash by Andy Mulligan at the beginning of the text a character that changed was Rat. The author wants to reveal to us how rat started from having no family to having family and being loved. An important character that changed at the beginning was rat. Throughout the book trash by Andy Mulligan. An example of change is when Raphael said “We stuck together we stayed in the dark.” I understand from this that rat has changed into a boy with friends and who is cared for.
George and candy find her and Candy is astonished. Carlson 's Luger ends up missing and Carlson blames Lennie. This murder had the least detail and this is the point where its Poor in detail.This lack in explanation in how she got up and tried to run or he pulled really grabbed me. If the storie laid out more detail for the reader, a vast portion of readers would be more satisfied. In chapter seven the story comes to the end when Lennie actually remembers to retreat to the Brush since something bad happened.
Of Mice and Men is a novella by John Steinbeck, published in 1937. It is set in the Salinas Valley in California during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Two migrant workers, George Milton and Lennie Small, have a work contract at a local ranch so that they one day might purchase a property of their own; however, due to Lennie’s childlike mental state the goal seems far-fetched. In his poem, ‘To a Mouse’, which is also the source of the novella’s title, Robert Burns wrote, “The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go often askew,” which one can compare to George’s goals of achieving the elusive American Dream together with Lennie, but as the poem also suggests this will go askew, and this is Lennie’s fault. Therefore, why does George not get rid of Lennie, when Lennie even offers to “(…) go off in the hills an’ find a cave.” (OMM, 14), and pursue the dream himself?
Lennie Small is a rather large and mentally disabled man. His mental disability is what ultimately kills him in the end, as he has no control over his immense strength. This is shown through the many mice that he had killed, which is proven during Lennie and George’s conversation about mice. Lennie talked about his Aunt Clara, his mother figure in a sense, and how she always used to give him mice. George proceeded to tell Lennie “An’ she stopped givem ‘em to ya.
